An announcement was made by Warner Bros. saying that they are planning for the $100 million cable car in order to take tourists from the studio to the most iconic Hollywood sign that is an area with increasing choked traffic by the tourists.
On Monday, the company that is one of the Tinseltown’s “Big Six “ film distributors told the officials that it would take up all the funding for the Hollywood Skyway.
As per the plans, the six-minute ride will cover more than 1.6 kilometres that are approximately more than a mile from Warner’s base that is located in the Burbank up Mount Lee to the visitor centre near the sign. The pathway is covered with a viewing area that will interest the tourists.
The iconic studio that lies behind the “Casablanca” and “Gone with the Wind” is not responding to the request for making any comment. However, they have circulated a statement that says that the project would “reduce street congestion, improve safety and ease neighbourhood frustrations.’
The company added, "Given our close proximity to the north side of the Hollywood sign, we believe we offer a solution that has the least impact on the environment -- protecting and preserving (nearby) Griffith Park -- and the surrounding residential neighbourhoods,".
The area is said to be dotting the housing on all the sides. Also, the aerial tramway would spare the homeowners from all the annoyance that come up with hikers and the traffic that come past their front doors as stated by Warner.
As per the localities, the ride-hailing services and the best navigation applications have made it way too easy in the years to getting touch with the car's riders without facing any trouble.
The area is floated for a long time but it always comes back down to the stumbling blocks. In 2017, it was all resurrected by Mayor Eric Garcetti who comes up with a proposal that includes the area nearby Universal Studios.
In 1923, the landmark was erected as a “Hollywoodland’ in order to advertise the local real estate development area.
Over the years, it has seen a number of transformations. In 1987, the pranksters come up with the name “Hollywood” in order to mark the visit of Pope John Paul I.
Even the last year, Los Angeles police arrested the local artist that was suspected to alter the letter to make it “Hollyweed’ as a New Year’s Eve Prank.
